Ms. Alita Sutherland
I am very happy to work at Junction Elementary to teach Kindergarten this year. I love the small school feel, friendliness and support. I taught 8 years in a small school on the coast called Hydesville Elementary. It is very similar to Junction in that it is a K-8 elementary and is in its own district. I taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade science and history my first year there. I then taught a 4th/5th combo, 3 years of 4th grade and 3 years of 3rd grade. This will be my second year at Junction. My husband has been working and living here in the Redding area for several years, so after my son graduated from high school I decided to relocate as well. We bought a home in Palo Cedro and are enjoying the country setting. I am also enjoying not having to drive Highway 36 so often! Please feel free to stop by my classroom (18) and say "hi"!
